Israel War News: Houthi Attacks In The Red Sea

Israel War News: Since mid-November 2023, the Houthi militants in northern Yemen have been conducting armed attacks near the Bab-el-Mandeb strait. The Bab-el-Mandeb Strait connects the Mediterranean Sea to the Arabian Sea via the Red Sea and the Suez Canal and is vital for 30 percent of global container traffic.

The attack targeting commercial vessels linked to Israel by the Houthis comes in the face of Israel’s war in Gaza. The Houthi attacks have led to disruptions in business operations, especially supply chain operations. The disruptions are likely to continue and add to the Israel War News as the Israel-Gaza war drags on and Houthis escalate the attacks in the Red Sea.
